Subject: The film's uses
Many theaters played the national anthem during WWII, and theaters on military bases still play it before every film today. The various services have always distributed such films free - they were used daily back when TV stations signed on and off, and found use when theaters hosted public meetings at which the national anthem might be appropriate as an opener.
